Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

As long as they always stay on a track, they should be good... Unless you have to stop or something...

Yeah, i run a 20 spoke Bontrager racelite front wheel that i had built (found the hub and rim seperately for cheap) and its flexy as hell. That wheelset just looks scary.

Which is probably why his friend is kicking him in the back of the leg.

I have 20 blades running radial on the front and a disk on the back of my Raleigh Grand Prix SS.
Looks pimp

My front wheel is 16 spoke and, while I love it, I'll be the first to admit that it does flex like mad sometimes. Never disconcertingly so, but definitely enough to notice.
